9 p.m., $10,

Hailing from lovely Anacortes, Washington, indie/rock/pop band, The Lonley Forest, was formed in 2005 after an impromtu raucous garage session inspired the guys (Braydn, Tony, and Eric) to join forces with Van Deusen and his piano-pop. Their music features Van Deusen’s soaring vocals and keyboard melodies held together by Ruland’s expressive guitar and cloaked by a heavy yet limber rhythm section. The band’s previous album, Arrows, has garnered much acclaim following its release on Trans Records/Atlantic Records. NPR called it “one of the best and most honest slices of pop music around.” Their latest studio effort, Adding Up the Wasted Hours, was released this past Tuesday, Oct. 8 by Trans / Chop Shop Records and was recorded by Death Cab For Cutie member Chris Walla.
